Wine is an unbeatable way to imbibe some French culture and time in Paris wouldn’t be well spent without enjoying some quintessential bars à vins. At the award-winning Ô Chateau, there are 40 wines by the glass and hundreds by the bottle, which is a good thing because I return frequently and never get bored.
After some of the city’s top restaurants became so popular it’s impossible to get a reservation even two weeks out, the chefs did us a favor and opened up no-reservation bars next door. Such is the case with Frenchie and Verjus Bar à Vins, both of which boast eclectic bottle lists from producers who are as mad about wine as the chefs are about cuisine. They don’t let you go hungry though; they also offer mouthwatering spin-offs of their finest dishes to pair with your vino of choice.
For the personal touch, the one-woman show at the teeny La Buvette provides an in-depth introduction to carefully selected wines. A bit of her paté, terrine or saucissons is the ideal complement to whatever you choose for your glass.
